It’s Gay Pride Week in ‘World of Warcraft’

You wouldn’t think that in World of Warcraft, where the most prevalent insult across the land by far is “fag,” you would see this kind of celebration of tolerance. But as it turns out, WoW is such a massive community (11 million and counting) it’s evolved into a relatively civilized society where things like virtual gay pride parades are possible.

This is actually the fifth annual “Proudmoore Parade” and the week includes other such fun activities as float designing, avatar modeling and nude dueling. Yup, nude dueling. The video above is of the parade itself (thankfully not of nude dueling), and I have to admit I’m pretty proud of the WoW community not doing anything trollish to disrupt it. I mean, these are the people who raided a funeral for a player who had died in real life.

    About Me

    After rising to blogging fame as the University of Michigan's answer to Gossip Girl, I took the EIC job at a student blog network spreading my wealth of college experience across the nation. My passion project is a movie/tv/gaming site called Unreality and I'm a movie news editor at JoBlo.com. I'm new to this business, and I think I'm a part of the first generation of journalists to skip print media entirely. When I started out, I had zero idea blogging could be a career, but I've learned more in the last ten months than I did in four years of college. What exactly did I major in again?
